Happy Blogiversary!

One year ago today I wrote my first post here on Made it on Monday. This little wreath started it all…

I wanted to enter a project in The CSI Project’s weekly contest, but needed a blog to do it. I didn’t want people to come check out my wreath and only see one post, so I wrote up a few others about projects I had already made. I don’t think I could have imagined what a big deal this blog would become for me. It has been my creative outlet, my therapy, a source of encouragement, and a whole lot of fun! (Check out THIS PAGE to read about why I blog.)

Since then, I’ve had a lot of fun stretching my imagination and getting crafty!

I’ve made clothes…
